ocean + ripple solver setup

Recommended Posts

hey!

I'm doing a water surface using the ocean tool under H16.5 and it's all good so far, now I want to intriduce a little wake in the deformed surface. I'm not using the displacement pipeline so I have the actual geo that I can bake and then apply the wake. is the ripple solver the right way to go? I'm struggling to combine the two effect and to apply the ripple solver on a moving object...any idea?

interesting enough I was looking into the same page, on another topic, I found a way to add deformations on a plane

and then feed it to the ripple solver thanks to an entagma tutorial, I'm hoping I can now combine the ocean and the ripple together, I guess the best would be to feed the grid with the ripples into the ocean deformer, rather than doing vice-versa, or maybe I can cached them separately and add the difference later on a per-point analysis
